Nina is a Consultant at the Good Governance Institute and has been with the company since 2016. Throughout her time at GGI, she has worked on a significant number of Board/Governing Body development programmes supporting NHS Trusts and CCGs. She also has experience undertaking effectiveness reviews of Higher Education institutions and a number of membership organisations.
Nina is passionate about the rights of minorities and this has shaped her education and experience. She holds a Master of Human Rights from University College London and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Sociology from Concordia University, Montreal which have given her a solid foundation employing rigorous research methods in the collection and analysis of data. Research she has undertaken includes qualitative research on post-war economies advocating the inclusion of women in post-conflict states as well as research employing a legal analysis methodology to assess the congruence of proposed national legislation prescribing limits to religious freedom against Human Rights Law, and most recently, she has contributed to a chapter on Higher Education Governance in a Routledge publication.
Prior to joining GGI, Nina volunteered her time with an International NGO where she undertook research for a contribution to the 2016 Guidelines for the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals advocating the representation of minority rights and the use of disaggregated data in the agenda. Nina has also worked in the External Relations Department of the United Nations International Maritime Organisation (IMO) where she volunteered her time to assist with the 29th session of the IMO Assembly.
